Secure Payments Transactions Powered By Paypal.
ProteinCo uses PayPal to secure your payment details for every transaction. PayPal is one of the worlds’ largest and most secure payment processors. With PayPal you can either use your existing PayPal account or pay without being a PayPal member. PayPal provides a secure 128bit encrypted SSL session to protect your privacy including credit card information. Credit card numbers are never seen by us, nor are they stored by our system. Once your payment has been validated, your data is destroyed by PayPal: this is why we ask for your payment card number again for each new order. This provides the highest possible level of security to make your online shopping experience safe and secure.
